Description Marian Rehak 2020-12-15 09:45:19 UTC
Envoy 1.16.0 logs an incorrect downstream address because it considers only the directly connected peer, not the information in the proxy protocol header. This affects situations with tcp-proxy as the network filter (not HTTP filters).

Comment 2 Mark Cooper 2020-12-17 05:49:16 UTC
Confirmed regression from https://github.com/envoyproxy/envoy/commit/fa2a7dbe5f1a0847e0bcbdcb001bac5f80bc92d9

So only affects v1.16.0. OSSM 2.0 is still on 1.14.5. Also given how maistra/envoy works we absorbed the changes but never the regression. 

OSSM 1.0 is 1.12.6, not vuln and oos.
